    No matter what one’s political affiliations are, censorship is wrong and outright dangerous. Book bans and book challenges are annoying, but it’s even worse when graphic novels are targeted. IMHO, graphic novels are still viewed in some quarters as being “kiddie” material, thus suitable only for children. Such graphic novels with more mature material are seen as being marketed towards children and thus a moral threat.
